About Me

I am currently on the 2021-2022 academic job market.

I am a PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I am working on AI for Robotics in Intelligent and Interactive Autonomous Systems Group (ILIAD), and advised by Prof. Dorsa Sadigh. I spent Summer 2021 as a research intern at Google under the supervision of Dr. Yinlam Chow, Dr. Mohammad Ghavamzadeh, and Prof. Craig Boutilier.

My research interests are: machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and their applications for human-robot interaction and multi-agent systems. I also work on AI and optimization for autonomous driving and traffic management.

Before coming to Stanford, I was an undergraduate student in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bilkent University, where I had chance to work in Imaging and Computational Neuroscience Laboratory (ICON Lab) in National Magnetic Resonance Research Center under the supervision of Prof. Tolga Çukur with a focus on compressed sensing reconstructions, coil compression, and bSSFP banding suppression in MRI. I also worked on generalized approximate message passing algorithms as an intern in Prof. Rudiger Urbanke's Communication Theory Laboratory (LTHC) in EPFL, under the supervision of Dr. Jean Barbier, for a summer.

I am also a passionate table tennis player, and I enjoy chess and board games.
